Current Indian team lacks full fielder: Mohd Kaif
NEW DELHI: The current Indian team has good fielders, but none of them is a complete package like Yuvraj Singh and he himself recognizes Mohammed Kaif .
The hero of India's victory at Natwest played over 100 ODI, mainly due to his excellent fielding. The superior Fielding His skills prolonged his career even as his batting form constantly decreased.
Asked about his take on Indian Fielding compared to the times when Yuvraj Singh would man the point and he would stand at extra cover, Kaif outlined the shortcomings in the current set-up.
To be a complete package, you must be a good receiver, you must be able to hit the stumps frequently, you must be able to run fast, you must have the correct technique to catch a ball in motion, said Kaif on YouTube channel 'SportScreen'
When we were playing, Yuvraj and I made our mark as good fielders. Today, you will find a lot of good fielders on the Indian team, but I don't think there is anyone who is a full fielder as a fielder.
A person who can catch on slips, who can catch on the short leg, can deploy at the long limit by running fast ... that package I think is missing, said Kaif, who has always been hailed as one of the best fielders in the India.
The 39-year-old man said that Ravindra Jadeja It is improving with age, but India's slippage has still left a lot to be desired.
Ravindra Jadeja is a good fielder, in fact as he is adding on the years, his Fielding is also improving. But India's slip Fielding isn't up to scratch.
In the debate between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma At the white ball cricket, Kaif said that if he had to choose between the two if they had been playing for different teams, he would rather see the stylish Mumbaikar.
"If there are two matches happening in the same city simultaneously and Virat is playing in one and Rohit in another, then I will head to the match featuring Rohit Sharma .
"No doubt, Virat has an outstanding record in Tests and white ball cricket both, but Rohit has the elegance, so much time while facing a bowler. He is one batsman who can smash a bowler without the bowler even realising that he is under attack."
